Welcome to the online home of Audra Jennings, a book publicist and crafter. Here I share about both. I hope you'll find books you'll want to read and crafts you will want to order. I live a rather boring, single life. At times I would like to think I am humorous. The kids I teach in Bible class tend to think so. I also blog about current seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. I don't know why, I just do.

The Books of the Old Testament
A couple of weeks ago on a Wednesday night, I asked the kids to look up something in Proverbs. When one asked if that was in the Old Testament or the New Testament, that launched into learning the books of the Old Testament.
I didn't get them singing this song because goodness knows, to have to sing would have been torture!
Last year (the video is dated wrong - it should say 16), this is what happened when the kids asked, "There's an Amos?" during scripture races!
